If your family came from Liverpool you can order birth, death and marriage certificates dating back to 1837. An introductory family history pack is also available on request to assist you with your research.
For Family History applications, the minimum information we require is the: quarter, year, Registration District and name and initials from the ONS index. Unfortunately, if you do not supply this information, or the index information available from the Lancashire BMD website, we will return your application.
Your local library may be able to advise or assist you with your search for the above information.
We recommend that you use our online ordering service.
If you would rather apply by post, please fill out the required form and post it to us at the address printed at the top of it.
If applying by post, your cheque or postal order should be made out to "Liverpool City Council". Each certificate will cost £10 and you should send individual cheques or postal orders for each certificate that you are requesting.
There is a 80p charge for First Class postage within the UK, unless a stamped addressed envelope is enclosed with your application. There is a charge of £1.50 to cover postage overseas. We are able to offer the Royal Mail Recorded Delivery Service for an additional £3 or special next day delivery at £7.50.. This is available for UK addresses only. Please be aware that this service requires a signature on delivery. Liverpool Register Office is not liable for any certificates that are delayed or lost in the post.
You can also visit the Register Office in person to complete an application and make your payment but your application will still go into the queuing system and cannot be collected the same day. We will post your certificate to you.Liverpool Register Office
